About the Central Image

Our central image depicts an ever-growing cone, or cornucopia, which expands not only in size, but in dimension.

If you have a Java-capable browser, you can investigate one of the interactive versions of the central cone; or you can view some animations of the central cone that display predefined rotations and slicings of the cornucopia.

You can find technical information about the equations for the curve and the function describing the radius of the strip or the circles or the spheres.

If you want your own copy of the MAM2000 poster, you can order a copy of the poster from the MAA.

Mathematics Awareness Month is sponsored each year by the Joint Policy Board for Mathematics to recognize the importance of mathematics through written materials and an accompanying poster that highlight mathematical developments and applications in a particular area.
